Research studies conducted by various scientists showed that engaging in sexual activity is not a priority for many women. One sex survey published in Time Magazine indicated that women prefer food to sex; other surveys found that women may prefer to be more in touch with their sexuality but might not have the desire to do so.
There are different kinds of sexual problems in women:
- Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorders - When you have a chronic lack of interest in sexual activity
- Sexual Arousal Disorders When you have persistent or recurrent inability to attain or maintain sexual excitement
- Sexual Aversion Disorder– when you have persistent or recurrent phobic avoidance of sexual contact with a partner
- Sexual Orgasmic Disorders When you have chronic difficulty in attaining orgasm following sufficient arousal
- Sexual Pain Disorders When you have pain during sex (Dyspareunia), involuntary vaginal spasm (Vaginismus), or genital pain following stimulation during foreplay.
If you suspect you may be suffering from sexual dysfunction, we might need to perform a variety of diagnostic tests and a physical assessment to confirm your condition. We would need to find out if the problem is related to hormonal imbalances, medications, or any emotional or psychological issues that need to be resolved. If your symptoms are side effects of your medications, we might need to prescribe a different medication. We might recommend you visit a psychologist or a therapist to get assistance to help you resolve any psychological or emotional traumas from the past that are affecting your sex life.
